These Are The Most Anti-Cannabis Newspapers In America

If you're looking for some upbeat articles on the cannabis industry, you should definitely avoid certain newspapers, which tend to present marijuana-related stories in a negative light, according to a new study. By and large, these papers held a more conservative bent than most publications.  

The top 5 anti-cannabis papers are...

  • The Dallas Morning News comes in at the #1 spot with 37.9 percent of cannabis articles being written in a negative tone.
  • Tampa Tribune and Columbus Dispatch tie for second with 29.2 percent of their cannabis articles being negative.
  • The Wall Street Journal placed third with 29 percent of cannabis articles being negative.
  • and 23.1 percent of the Tulsa World's cannabis articles have a negative tone, making it forth.

On the flip side, newspapers that skew liberal tend to write about cannabis in a positive tone. Here are the top five:

  • The Columbus Dispatch was the most pro-cannabis newspaper going, with 37.1 percent of their cannabis articles written in a positive tone.
  • 37 percent of articles published by the New York Times were positive.
  • 35.8 percent of stories from The Seattle Times were positive toward cannabis.
  • 32.4 percent of Washington Post articles were kind to cannabis.
  • And the San Fransisco Chronicle wrote 31.9 percent of their cannabis articles in a positive tone.

That doesn't mean the majority of their stories were negative though. The study noted that - across the board - newspapers took a neutral tone toward marijuana. Which is in itself a positive thing given how cannabis has been demonized for decades in American society.

While most trends seem to move towards safer and more well-protected activities for children, this might be the wrong approach when it comes to playgrounds. At least, that’s what a recent video from Vox’s By Design series, which explores the concept of “adventure parks,” argues. "They can play with any dangerous tool, they can take really dangerous risks and overcome them, and this builds up a tremendous sense of self-confidence in themselves," Marjory Allen, landscape architect and the person most responsible for popularizing the adventure park concept, said in an archival interview.
